    Set during the North African Campaign of World War II, Bitter Victory concerns top secret missions and clandestine love behind enemy lines. Veteran Captain Jimmy Leith (Burton), volunteers to lead a dangerous operation in Benghazi alongside the booksmart but inexperienced Major David Brand (Jurgens). Soon, the Major realizes he and Captain Leith share more than just the mission: his wife Jane, an RAF Flight Lieutenant, seems to share a mysterious past with the Captain. Bitter Victory accents its taut emotions with the horror and glory of war, set against a desert landscape.
